Turkeys Can't Fly...


...but they can hop. This is what we've been waking up to since we moved a rabbit hutch next to the tool room a few days ago.
Problem is....he can't quite figure out how to get down. I had to climb up and drop him onto the bunny cage; at least he figured it out from there:)


ps. we will be moving the hutch....soon!

This one made me laugh! Maybe you should build him a ramp.

It was pretty funny, especially going out in the yard in the morning and hearing the cries of distress from up there....he truly was scared. Kept putting his foot on the edge and looking down...he SO wanted to get to his food but just couldn't quite make the commitment to jumping down.

Good lawd! That is one big ass bird.

It's the morning ritual now. I try to coax Dinner, that's the turkey's name, down by feeding the other birds. He hims and he haws, then I climb up on the roof and gently throw him outwards and he flies/falls to the ground. With quite a bit of flourish I admit.

That was Brad's idea Mo....kind of precludes getting too attached when you are reminded daily of his purpose in life:)
